The evolution of Kristina’s yoga practice has been inspired by many and continues to transform. Her trainings & discipline to Tibetan Buddhist Meditation while studying at Naropa University in 2004 later evolved into a deeper awareness of the body and mind connection, gaining her 600 Hour Massage Therapist certification. Enriching her life with the trainings of Thich Nhat Hanh and yogic philosophy, Kristina’s daily practice has unfolded into a living life model. She gained her SmartFLOW® Yoga
certification under founder and creator, Annie Carpenter
, during her short residence in Los Angeles, California. Kristina has many teachers and though she has chosen to work exclusively under Ms. Carpenter, following and teaching the SmartFLOW methodology, she also shares a dynamic blend of Tibetan Buddhist wisdom, SmartFLOW yoga and self empowerment philosophy with her students on and off the mat!
From these amazing experiences, Kristina’s living yoga unfolded and overtime she created Mindful Evolution Yoga
, combining mindful living
& conscious evolution
with yogic philosophy. Kristina incorporates her skills in body therapeutics, alignment and movement with SmartFLOW® yoga asana and Tibetan Buddhist Meditation, working with individuals to create a sequence of daily life
Kristina has learned to see the body as a whole unit, not only on the massage table but also in flowing, smart body functions & movements. Her yoga classes focus on exploration, internal awareness, alignment with mindful flowing movements. Providing smart and deliberate sequences, her students gain flexibility, strength, balance, breath control and personal insight.
Kristina is a proud yoga ambassador for lululemon athletica
. She is also on the council of the non-profit organization, Bridges Between
(BB), volunteering as the Director of Public Relations and Community Outreach, where she promotes education among women and children in the remote villages of Nepal.
Using somatic expressions, words, laughter, dedication and discipline, Kristina has a deep rooted passion to help others live on their path, staying true to their heart and inner wisdom. A lover of dark chocolate and mate tea, an avid hiker, snowboarder, community worker, and a newbie to the surfing world, Kristina resides in San Diego, California mindfully evolving!
